A NEGLECTED EMPEROR. aome surprise has been occasioned by the position assigned to the bust of the late Emperor Frederic in the Berlin Arsenal. It is not placed, says the Standard's Berlin correspondent, in the Circular Hall, among the statues of the other Prussian Sovereigns, but at the side, in the hall dedicated to the Marshals. Separated from the statue of the Emperor William by that of Prince Bismarck, it stands next to Count Moltke, and opposite the Red Prince Frederick Charles. The inscription merely says: Frederic William, Crown Prince of Prussia, General Field Marshal, born 1831, died 1888." There is no ostensible reason for the bust being placed in the background, as there is ample space in the Hohenzollern Hall for several more statues of Prus- sian rulers, all of whom are included, from the Great Elector down to William I. On the latest anniversary of the late Emperor's death, this, the only monument existing to his memory in Berlin,, re- mained unadorned by wreaths or flowers.
